Mind Perception
Illusions
Many people believe that illusions trick the eye and that is why they are called "optical" illusions. It is true that the eye has to do with illusions, but not as much as people expect. The human eye does not have a processor which understands what it sees then tells the brain. What the eye is
seeing is only picture, while the
brain processes what the picture is.


So You can predict the future!!!!!!
Background Knowledge
A feeling that your senses can tell, or can remember.

Predicting the Future
Not like the fortune tellers with crystal balls.
It might have saved our ancestors from attacks from hostile creatures.
Color
Color is when light rays bounce off an object, and that certain object absorbs some light rays, and others bounce off of it. The light rays that bounce off of an object is the color we see that the object is.

Color
Colors are in their very own category of mind perception and optical illusions. Some of the most popular illusions have to do with coloring.

Point Of View
Illusions
Other scientists believe a little differently than most scientists that study illusions. Some scientists believe that illusions are the result of our brains trying to predict the future. Everything takes time. Our brains take about a tenth of a second to process what it is seeing. This means that the brain has to guess what happens in the near future.
Test out your prediction skills.
Point of View
What is mind perception? Mind perception is when the brain processes what one sees when they are looking at something. For example, when you seen an orange, you think of fruit. This is the same for everything in the world except for a particular case which are illusions. Whenever the brain tries to process an illusion, it realizes that the illusion cannot be real and has a hard time understanding.
These are a few ways people manipulate common variables in life to make illusions.
Persuasion
Persuasion leads the brain to think of something that may or may not be true.
The person who is viewing an optical illusion that must be seen in a certain place can only see the full effect of the illusion when they are standing there. If they move even a little bit, the illusion's effect is obliterated.
Shape
Shape
One of the most popular type of illusion is a shape illusion. These illusions have to do with a shifted reality of real items. For example, the impossible cube is a normal cube with impossible edges.
Shape
Pretty much every type of illusion is based off of shape, so without any shape illusions, we wouldn't be able to make any illusions at all!
Conclusion
So at first, how the mind perceives illusions seems to be something that is very simple, but once one gets deeper into illusions, they have a whole new world to explore.

Conclusion
Observation and background knowledge
Observation and background knowledge are two very important factors in optical illusions. From a study that a person named Doherthy conducted, she got 151 kids who were around the age of 10, and a few adult volunteers who ages ranged from 18-25 years.
